We need to put an end to landmines. These weapons kill or wound between 4,000 and 5,000 people every year, and a large majority are civilians and children. Many countries have acknowledged the hazardous nature of these devices and signed the Mine Ban Treaty over the past 16 years.

Although America has stated we will no longer use mines, we have not signed the treaty. In fact, we still have 10.4 million landmines stockpiled for future use. Some officials have claimed the resources required to remove its share of landmines would be better used elsewhere, but can we really put a price on saving lives?

It's our duty to clean up the mess and prevent innocent people from dying.

Landmines kill indiscriminately. Those that use them should remove them, actually it'd be better not to use them at all.
